GENERAL INFORMATION

Forward suspension bracket

Type of a forward suspension bracket (all models)
Independent suspension bracket with racks of MacPherson and the stabilizer of cross-section stability on the majority of models

Back suspension bracket


Type:
  – Pickup models
Tubular back axis with sheet springs and telescopic shock-absorbers
  – all other models
Semi-independent, with cylindrical springs and telescopic shock-absorbers. The system of a being self-leveled back suspension bracket is established only by request. On some models the stabilizer of cross-section stability is established

Steering

Steering type (all models)
